president hosni mubarak back in 2010. but mubarak is gone and president m mohammed morsi is clearly playing a different and dangerous game. given the current situation protesters are storming the palace. more than a den dead. hundreds are injured. why on earth are we handing over 20 advanced fighter jets to a regime we don't exactly trust? we have a money power panel, miast experts to explain. mike barrett, diligent consulting firm. judy miller from the manhattan institute. a fox news contributor. michael rubin, a resident scholar at the american enterprise institute. mike barrett, let me start with you. why are we doing this. >> i have a hard time explaining this. i've been on the show before and talked about it. in general giving some money to the military is a good idea because they're somewhat moderating force in egypt. giving more training, weapons, small arms, ammunition is one thing. 20 f-16s puts you in entirely different category. i'm frankly surprised they will do this. melissa: judy, i thought this had something to do with the deal that president morsi brokered between hamas and

military doing right now seeing which side, either mohammed morsi or people on the street will cut them a better deal because i'm not so sure that the egyptian's military interest is anything other than their bank account. melissa: judy, what is the best play here? >> i understand what michael is saying and i agree to a certain extent. we have people already in the streets killing one another in the world's largest arab country with 80 million people. we need to play this card out. i think what the obama administration could not do, they should stop falling all over president morsi and praising him for little things like the cease-fire in the israeli-gaza conflict. i mean you can be supportive without being slavishly pro-president morsi. right now a great deal is at stake and the obama administration ought to exercise a little more caution, but yes, i hate to say it, keep those planes going. melissa: mike barrett, last word to you, what is your take? last word from here. >> i agree with the slow roll approach. i don't want to see the economy collapse. i don't want to get into sanctions an
